Andreas Mueller, President, Bloofusion Group (www.bloofusion.com), will discuss the Top Five Misconceptions in Global Online Marketing:

- Search Engine Optimization (SEO)? What is it? (Content, Linking)
- Pay Per Click (PPC)? What is it?(Keywords, Bids)
#1: Sites? We’ll figure out the URLs on the fly
#2: Timing? We’ll start SEO on all international properties
#3: Content? We’ll just translate the US site
#4: Management? We’ll just leave it up to the locals.
#5: Support? Distribution? We’ll handle it in the US
